Excellent earlier volume in the amazing Sine Fiction releases. "Intro" sets the tone with a croaky-sounding rhythmic loop and busy electronics. This is followed by the foreboding drones and drifting electronics of "Haflinger". "Kate" is a dark composition gentley textured with glitch and static. "Tarnover" is the culminating track featuring ominous, reverberating drones that build in intensity before residing.
